ASC Research

Popular topic lately... from Science Daily:
"techniques used in these studies to introduce a different version of a single gene or inactivate a particular gene were ineffective in human ESCs"
"They derived human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) ... in cultures containing the growth factor LIF, which is used in the creation of mouse ESCs. The resulting cells visibly resembled mouse ESCs and proved amenable to a standard gene manipulation technique that exchanges matching sequences of DNA"
